TRS working president K.T. Rama Rao had called Jayashankar Bhupalpally district collector Mr Vasam Venkateshwarlu on Wednesday and asked him to send a report with information regarding the boy.
Kushwant’s father Laxminarayana, an employee with Singareni Collieries in Godavarikhani, had died in a road accident more than a decade ago. His mother Anitha decided to move to Bhupalpally after their relatives showed no interest in helping the bereaved family. She worked hard as a tailor to provide education for her two sons Kushwant and Srikar. Not letting her down, Kushwant worked hard to score good marks in his class 10. Anitha then enrolled Kushwant in Sri Chaitanya College, Hyderabad for his intermediate education.

Kushwanth secured 19th rank in the AIIMS entrance test announced on Wednesday and is all set to get a seat in AIIMS, Delhi.
